29 House Democrats Turn Against Biden and Side with Republicans to Pass Gas Stove Measure

Published on

Wednesday, bipartisanship erupted in the House in an effort to derail the Biden administration’s campaign to virtually outlaw gas stoves.

The House voted 251 to 181 in favor of the amendment from Republican Rep. Gary Palmer of Alabama that would “prohibit the Secretary of Energy from implementing its proposed rule regarding gas stoves, or any other rule that would limit consumer access to gas stoves.”

To get this number, 29 Democrats and 222 Republicans voted.

According to Fox News, a draft Department of Energy regulation called for new energy efficiency criteria that amounted to a de facto ban since few current stoves could fulfill them.

Palmer, chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, stated that Democrats who opposed his plan made life more difficult for everyday People.

“Despite all their words to the contrary, House Democrats are supportive of federal bureaucrats’ attempts to ban gas stoves. By voting against my amendment to prevent the Department of Energy from implementing its anti-natural gas agenda, they have shown themselves to be complicit,” Palmer said.

“Clearly, the plan to ban gas stoves was already in the works even before federal bureaucrats said the quiet part out loud earlier this year,” he said.

“Republicans are meeting this attempt to dismantle American energy head on and will continue to empower Americans to choose what appliances belong in their kitchens, not have it dictated to them by a bureaucrat with a political agenda.”

The House has not yet voted on the bill containing Palmer’s amendment. If the bill passes the House, it would proceed to the Senate, where it would also need Democratic support to become law.
